In 1968, a young, charismatic activist named Fred Hampton (Daniel Kaluuya) became Chairman of the Illinois chapter of the Black Panthers, who were fighting for freedom, the power to determine the destiny of the Black community, and an end to police brutality and the slaughter of Black people.

Hampton was inspiring a generation to rise up and not back down to oppression, which put him directly in the line of fire of the US government, the FBI and the Chicago Police. Intent on destroying the revolution, they hatch a plan to do it from the inside.
